The adventure doesn’t end on the small screen. This week, we’re heading into the theaters (remember those?) with Star Trek: The Generation Movie Trivia. Specifically, Star Trek movies 7 through 10.
That just leaves us with the new Star Trek movies that started in 2009. Stay tuned for those in a future episode.
I’m not screaming, you’re screaming.
Also, Season Four of Discovery has been teased:
I bet you thought we’d forgotten about this, didn’t you? Fear not, Star Trek: The Animated series won’t be missed. Here are thirty questions to slake your Star Trek trivia thirst.
The often forgotten series didn’t run long, but it was memorable to those of us that got a chance to watch it. Try your best and then binge the series to pick up anything you missed.
When you are done, visit the other Star Trek series episodes.
For the first time, ever, we’ll have three live-action Star Trek shows airing at the same time. Sounds like this one will be a throwback to the old days of a more optimistic look at the future.
Which, frankly, we could use right about now.

One more trip out to the Final Frontier? Why not. You guys should rock this since you all read my reviews with rapt fascination, right?
We’re going to the edge of the Final Frontier this week with Star Trek: Voyager. Twenty-five years ago, the last of the “Next Gen” series premiered. How well do you remember the show?
CBS AllAccess is making the first episode of Star Trek: Picard free for a limited time on YouTube.
If you’re curious about the show before dropping another subscription fee, check it out. (Embedding is disabled for this video, so you have to watch it on YouTube.com).
ETA: Apparently this is for US folks only.
Dorothy Catherine “D.C.” Fontana has passed away at the age of 80 after a brief illness. She wrote for a variety of TV shows, including four Star Trek series, Babylon 5, and much more. She wrote the Star Trek novel, Vulcan’s Glory, which tells of Spock’s first mission aboard the Enterprise and explored Captain Pike’s “Number One” character (played by Majel Barret in the unaired pilot, “The Cage”).
In a male-dominated industry, she hid her gender using her initials (a common practice in those days for women writers).
Fontana wrote one of (if not the best) episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series, “Yesteryear” as well as the DS9 episode “Dax” which explored the past hosts of Jadzia’s symbiote. She also wrote “Journey to Babel” for TOS, which introduced Spock’s parents, Sarek and Amanda.
